About Dome Life Design

First, let’s begin by introducing you to the unique Zen-like qualities of dome life design. A dome’s architecture is beneficial to one’s overall sense of tranquility and wellness. Why is this? Because the harmonic architecture of domes is based on the ancient science of Sacred Geometry.

Exploring the energetic qualities of domes enables one to recognize that each dome size produces a resonant field that’s unique to that structure. The resonant field of a 30-ft. dome home creates an environment that supports the balanced feminine qualities within the family unit – especially, when it comes to those nurturing attributes unique to women – meanwhile, supporting those energies in their male counterparts, as well.
